The Bel-Airs were an early and influential surf rock band from South Bay, Los Angeles, active in the early 1960s.
They were best known for their 1961 hit “Mr. Moto”, an instrumental surf rock song that featured a flamenco inspired intro and contained a melodic piano interlude. The song’s theme was used in the solo for the song “Seed” by Sublime.
Upon splitting up, guitarist Eddie Bertrand formed Eddie & the Showmen in 1964, while guitarist Paul Johnson joined Cat Mother & the All Night Newsboys in 1970. Original Bel-Airs drummer Dick Dodd joined Bertrand in Eddie & the Showmen, and later joined The Standells, playing drums and singing lead on their major 1966 hit, “Dirty Water”. Richard Delvy replaced Dick Dodd on drums and went on to found the surf group The Challengers.
Johnson has continued in music, both in recording and as a performer. Among other music associations, he has been a member of the “Jim Fuller version” of The Surfaris since 1990.[3] Bertrand also continued in music, touring as Eddie and the Soundwaves, among other performance configurations.[4] Dodd has participated in various reunions and later recordings of The Standells.
Eddie Bertrand died of cancer in November 2012.
